@Gedweb Please only mark the package as out-of-date if there is a new version available.

The reason you're getting the unrecognized option error is because you're using a JDK release prior to version 11. I couldn't maintain backwards compatibility when I chose these options. If you update to JDK 11 (which is now the default jdk-openjdk package), these options should work fine.

@fatalcoder Unfortunately, that's one of the options that I had to update in order to make it compatible with JDK 11

Had to change -Xlog:gc to -Xloggc for java openjdk1.8 because of Unrecognized option: -Xlog:gc:/var/log/kafka/kafkaServer-gc.log

@sunng Done! Switched to +UseG1GC and eliminated some other GC options that have been deprecated

Thanks for the heads-up!

The Java option +UseParNewGC specified in systemd_kafka.service is no longer available in JDK 11. Could you please fix that file?

The package has some conflicting files with confluent-platform. I would like to use Kafka and its REST API which is part of the confluent-platform package: What is the best way to run Kafka's REST API?

Updated to upstream version 1.0.1

@aqsg As part of the update process, I removed both Kafka and Zookeeper from my local machine and pulled down Kafka using yaourt from the AUR. The Zookeeper dependency was resolved using the Zookeeper in the AUR, which is needed to build Kafka from the AUR.

If you're still having issues, please post the steps to reproduce and I'll take a look.

@aqsg Are you able to install the package zookeeper that also maintained by cramaker from AUR?

aqsg commented on 2018-03-02 11:21

I'm not able to build package... it downloads some of the package and then states pacman unable to resolve dependencies 'zookeeper', but I already have zookeeper.
